Coaching & Communicating for Performance is a highly interactive program that provides supervisors and managers the opportunity to build skills that will enable them to share expectations and set objectives for employees, provide constructive feedback, more effectively engage in learning conversations, and coaching opportunities.

This program is for individuals in a management or supervisory position and consists of four one-day workshops and learning project work in small groups. Prior to the first session, participants will complete the confidential online Strengths Deployment Inventory. Between sessions 1 and 2, participants will have a private, confidential debrief of their results and coaching meeting with a facilitator.

Session 1 – Understanding Yourself, Understanding Others

Instructor: Jackie Lauer, Axletree Consulting Inc.

According to a 2007 issue of the Harvard Business Review, self-awareness is the most important capability for leaders to develop. Knowing your internal states, preferences, resources, and intuitions allows you to plan actions and develop proactive behaviour. When you understand yourself you are more likely to understand others.

Focus of this session:

  • The rationale for performance planning, assessment and development at the University of Guelph
  • Recognizing one’s emotions and their effects
  • Knowing one’s strengths and limitations
  • Recognizing one’s assumptions and judgments
